  • Science of the Paranormalby Dr. Joe Schwarcz -- McGill University Watch Preview Video Curie Stage Saturday, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM 60 Minutes Add to Schedule!

    Special Note: Joe Schwarcz will sign books at Book Signing Table 3 on Saturday at 11:00 AM.

    Since the dawn of civilization humans have been fascinated by phenomena which appear to lie outside the scope of science. Our history is peppered with accounts of psychics predicting the future, mediums conversing with the dead, and aliens in UFO's abducting earthlings. Today, there is widespread belief that the moon and planets influence our behavior, that "psychic surgeons" can remove tumors without making incisions and that Uri Geller bends spoons with the power of his mind.

     

    In a must-see presentation covering paranormal phenomena, Dr. Joe Schwarcz, a noted chemist and Director of McGill University’s “Office for Science & Society, explores if these effects really lie outside the scope of modern day science. He demonstrates how many of the effects can be explained by perfectly "natural" means. His presentation will also be highlighted by a number of interactive activities aimed at increasing the awareness of the need to evaluate "paranormal" phenomena by critical scientific methods.

     

    Dr. Joe (as he is known by his students and fans in Canada) is well known for his informative and entertaining public lectures on topics ranging from the chemistry of love to the science of aging. The recipient of numerous honors for his work, he is the only non-American ever to win the American Chemical Society’s prestigious Grady-Stack Award for demystifying chemistry. He hosts "The Dr. Joe Show" on Montreal's CJAD and has appeared many times on The Discovery Channel, CTV, CBC, TV Ontario and Global Television.
